Another must stop on the Bamberg beer love fest tour. Beers not as smokey as Schlenkerla. Across the street from Fassla. Food was good; service pleasant. Not as touristy as Schlenkerla.

What a great location. Beer selection was only two but they were good. Sevice is self serve so it was spot on. Food was a great plus. Coming back for sure but next time driving. Its a long walk up the hill.

Really nice vintage place. Patio was closed so we took a seat inside in a slightly stuffy but very atmospheric room. Locals filled all the tables so we sat quietly at the end of one of them. Our waitress was very kind and welcoming. Enjoyed the beers here, they were some of the best in Bamberg proper - if only for beer, I would recommend this place the most I think.

Visited several times, nice brauhaus placed within walking distance from city center. Traditionel deco, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. In summertime you can sit outside in their small beergarden in the back. Beers are served in good condition, though I don´t think their smoked beer are smokey enough :-). Do great traditionel brauhaus food as well. For sure worth a visit ;-)

Spezial was a great first stop after arriving in Bamberg. Had a massive hearty lunch here washed down with the house brews. The back garden is a lovely place to relax and soak up a piece of Bamberg tradition. The beers are tasty. Staff attentive. Well worth a visit.

After awhile all the German brewpubs start to get a sameyness about them, but this one stands out in the memory. It just has that extra bit of fairly dust sprinkled on it. From the locals drinking from their steins, to the clergy having a breakfast beer to the friendly fast and English speaking service. Only shame is there are not too many beers here for the ticker. For the drinker - well with that hat on I could happily while away a few hours here.

Visited during Jolly to Bamberg 2014. Visited early on a saturday and had a few nice beers. Not that crowded, but a nice atmosphere. Regulars had their own tale in the back corner of the place. We had a few draughts, and also bought a few bottles to go.Would like to visit again. Strange opening hours on saturdays!

Quiet when I visited, but this was early in the morning. Fairly large venue, so might get very busy and lively later in the evenings. A few of their own rauchbiers available as well as a few from other breweries. Fast service.

Visited, for the third time, on the Bamberg Post Xmas Blues Jolly for post breakfast beers a little after 1000 on Saturday 25th January 2014. Wood panelled room with a few nic-nacs on the walls, large wooden bench tables, probably enough to seat 70/80 people when full. The place was pretty quiet as you may expect with 3 or 4 other drinkers including a priest in the corner!!! Service was prompt and friendly and our man spoke good English. Bang opposite Fassla so just under 10 minutes walk to the HBF, and a little over 10 to Mahrs/Keesmann or the altstadt. They also do accomodation here, never tried it. Beer wise 3 vom Fassla plus 2 (different) bottles to go. Solid Bamberg venue, solid subtle rausch biers.

The beer was good and the ambience was incredibly beautiful. I really wanted to like this place, but the service was downright off putting the one and only time I visited. The level of unfriendliness was in stark contrast to the welcoming atmosphere at Fassla right across the street. Spezial was not that special for me, but I hope that my experience was just an aberration and would still recommend it for a place not to be missed in Bamberg. I just hope that others have a better experience than I did, as the other posts suggest that it is the norm.
